Eisaku ANDO (Galerie Grand E’terna à Paris 9/20–11/9)
“The world must be made from within” – these words, spoken by Eisaku Ando, are reflected in the simple carved forms of this exhibit, allowing one to see the sculptures resulting from the life energy from within coming to the surface. Ando carves their sculptures as one would chop a tree with a hand axe; the countless fine yet powerful pieces of bark are also a distinct characteristic of Ando.
Take this opportunity to peruse the sculptures that display the Ando that came to be after studying the art for years, all the while experiencing the 3.11 disaster and life during the evacuation, the new life that followed, and being award with the 28th Hirakushi Denchu Award in 2017 and the 10th Enku award at the Enku Grand Awards in 2019.
